Shadow Brokers move bitcoins after hacking tool auction – BBC News

Bitcoins worth £18,500 ($24,000) that were sent to hacker group the Shadow Brokers have been moved.The funds were received during an auction of hacking tools that failed to attract much interest before the group eventually released the tools for free.One leak included an exploit that helped the WannaCry ransomware to spread around the world.This tool and others are believed to have been stolen from the US National Security Agency (NSA).The agency has not confirmed or denied this.The bitcoins have been moved to multiple addresses, leading some commentators to think that the Shadow Brokers plan to obfuscate the transactions, before perhaps exchanging the bitcoins for traditional currency.
